Location: Innsbruck, Austria


She is a heroine to many, a queen to others, but all super sports stars start somewhere, and, for Olympic figure skating champion Yuna Kim, her inspiration was two-time Olympic medallist and five-time world champion Michelle Kwan. In this exclusive YOG video, Yuna pays homage to her idol, sharing private memories of meeting the US figure skating legend for the first time and the pride she feels in being able to now call her a friend.
